Episode 52: Sounds of Elsie Fest 2018

Welcome to Season Three of Elsie Cast!!!!

Thank you to everyone who subscribes to the podcast and/or the blog, who listened even once, who told a friend about the podcast, and who follows on Twitter or Facebook. And thank you to every one of you who came up and said hi at Elsie Fest. It means so much to know that there is a community of people out there forming around Elsie Fest and that this podcast is even a tiny part of it. Here’s the hug I want to give to all of you:


This episode of the podcast is one of my favorites. You’ll get to hear interviews with Elsie Fest attendees, a bit of the Marie’s Crisis singalong with last episode’s guest Kenney Green, and selections from the concert itself.

I did have some technical issues, so the episode isn’t as long as last year’s, but I hope it gives you a flavor of what it’s like to go to Elsie Fest and a little something to hang onto throughout the long year’s wait until the next Elsie Fest.

In other news, this happened:

We’re weird, and we sure are happy about it!

And here are some photos of my guests:
